$y=2-2x$ is the same as $y=-2x+2$, which is the slope-intercept form of a linear equation, $y=mx+b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept. In the given equation, $m=-2$ and $b=2$.

Finding at least two points on the graph, placing those points on the graph, and then drawing a straight line through those points are all necessary steps in graphing a linear equation.

To find the points, pick values for $x$, and solve for $y$ using the equation $y=-2x+2$.

Point 1

$x=0;$$y=2$

Point 2

$x=1;$$y=0$
